I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.

Lucy, you are in my prayers. I am so sorry, I didn't realize that Bob was sick, he was a wonderful man. I feel so blessed to have been able to spend as much time as I did with you two. May God be with you during this difficult time. Love always Retta

We are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing and our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. Today, especially, I have been thinking about all the great memories I have of Bob, Lucy, Anita and Bobby, from crazy family holidays at our house or yours to the fun trips we've been on together to all the baseball games at Dodger Stadium, etc. All of them brought a smile to my face, some even a chuckle. We hope that you all have that opportunity to remember all the great memories and fun times. We love you!

Lucy and Family I am greatly saddened by your loss of Mr. Bob. Bob was a barrel of fun and a great friend. I will forever miss having him pick on me. I will never forget that beautiful smile that I got everytime we saw one another. Rest In Peace Bob
